My Review:Beginning Babble: I am a big fan of western romances but I don't tend to read them that often. I sometimes feel as if the Western aspect takes a bit of a backseat to the romance and I just can't abide by that. That being said, I am happy I found Rosanne Bittner because this is the best Western I have read in a very very long time.
Heroine: Maggie-Maggie was perhaps one of the strongest heroines I have ever come across. She is a survivor pure and simple. She never cracks or becomes weak. She got angry and wanted revenge. The terrible things that happened to Maggie would have taken a weaker person down but not Maggie and I really liked that.
Hero: Sage-I also really liked Sage. He was a good guy and was very kind and protective. He also had the prototypical psycho ex-wife which made him a bit more interesting. I didn't make as much of a connection to Sage as I did to Maggie but I liked him all the same.
Chemistry: I really enjoyed Sage and Maggie together but, for some reason, the romance storyline falls a bit by the wayside. Don't get me wrong , they have great chemistry but the adventure kind of takes over. I really loved that.
Ending Babble: I really loved this book. It was a true Western in the best way possible. The adventure was gripping, the characters well-written and likable and the baddies were very bad. I didn't mind that the romance kind of fell to the background because I was so interested in everything else that was going on in the story. I know my mother has other Rosanne Bittner books on her shelves and I will have to ask her to borrow them.
